Colton Close - Glenroy

Part of the Glenroy community since 1980, Colton Close is renowned for its high standard of care, expert staff and wide-range of leisure and lifestyle activities. A multi-million dollar upgrade in 2008 expanded the home to offer 150 rooms, including a 29-room specialised low care dementia unit. The home also provides for ‘ageing in place’, which allows residents to remain living in the low care hostel, should their care needs change to require more specialised care.

Are you prepared for residential aged care?

To be prepared for the move into a Benetas home plus to determine some of the costs for your care and whether you qualify for additional Government funding, you should apply for the Government's Combined Assets and Income Assessment (valid for 120 days prior to moving in). Benetas welcomes people without this Assessment, as you may choose not to apply but instead pay the full costs for your care needs and accommodation.
